The Irish Arts Center opens its doors on Sunday, March 19, at noon for its annual Irish extravaganza filled with authentic music, dances, crafts and live piano karaoke sing-alongs of Ireland and Irish-America’s greatest hits.
You’ll also get to see a performance and group lesson by World Irish Dance Champion Tyler Shwartz. Events include the U.S. premiere of Tann Ann (an old Gaelic expression for “once upon a time”), a short film series blending storytelling, visual art, puppetry, and original music to transport all to the supernatural world of Irish folklore and mythology.

Now the one-time Irish enclave of Hell’s Kitchen has become an upscale neighborhood, but most of the spots where the gangs lived and operated are still standing.

The Brooklyn Deli Where Pastrami is Delectable
The 130-seat restaurant features one of the tenderest pastrami sandwiches with Swiss cheese, butter pickles and Russian dressing, between slices of rye bread. You can also get this with Corned Beef and sauerkraut.
There’s also deep dish pizza’s ($7.95), a fried chicken sandwich ($9.95) and Burgers ($7.95).
Thanks to Eli Marcus and City Guide, I was invited to a concierge event to introduce this deli to the hotel community.
I tried all of the items I have mentioned plus a Potato Knish ($3.95) and Cheese Bread and everything was done to perfection. I was so into the Knish, I ate before taking a picture.
The Fireman Group also owns Brooklyn Deli at 200 West 57th Street, Brooklyn Diner at 155 West 43d Street and 212 West 57th Street, Fiorello, overlooking Lincoln Center, the Red Eye Grill at 890 7th Ave, Trattoria Dell’Arte at 900 7th Ave, Cafe Paradiso at 144 West 65th and Bond 45 at 221 West 46th.
